Take our Processors Survey

Calling all food processors and food business owners! Take our survey & tell us what you value in a commercial kitchen.

We're conducting a food processor market research survey and would greatly appreciate your participation. Your feedback will provide us with invaluable insights that will help inform the future of our space.

The survey is open to anyone who is currently operating or plans to operate a food business on Vancouver Island. It takes 7-10 minutes to complete, and your responses will be kept confidential.

As a token of appreciation for your time, all participants who complete the survey will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 value South Island FarmHub gift basket.

Thank you for your valuable feedback!
